I just unrolled two of these rugs at my new home and realized I have had them for over five years (and through several moves). These are some quality rugs. Thick, dense pile and they still look GREAT even though I have always had them in front hall areas so they have seen a ton of foot traffic. With the Superior rug pad underneath (also through Overstock) these feel better under my feet than any other rug I have owned (plenty--every place I have lived has been zero carpet). Since I'm on here today trying to figure out what other rugs are from the same source, I figured I should write this updated review and give this rug the credit it deserves.
I agree with another review writer, her cats loved to scratch it, one of mine does too! He hasn't damaged it so far, as the pile is thick and HIGH quality! I would expect some shedding of a high quality wool product, and it has a little. Great shape and weight so you most likely will not need a rug pad/liner. Amust have durable unit for your heavy traffic entry way!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? doesn't match, but I read that on another review, It's greener & duller red
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Awesome quality!!!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very, just picture is more vibrant than actual quality
I ordered this rug shortly before the holidays and was worried that it might not arrive in time. That fear was premature as it was shipped immediately and arrived according to my schedule.When we opened it I was thrilled with how thick the pile is on the runner, and how lush it felt underfoot. Even the cat found a comfy new home.There was a slight green tinge to the background, which was not anticipated. Luckily for me it drew the other colors in my room together, The aqua was more vivid than expected but it was workable.Ultimately the only regret I have is that it was not offered in another size, as I would have ordered a companion piece.
I'd recommend this if you are ok with pink tones. It was good quality and a thick runner so that was perfect, but the coloring was way off from what I was looking for.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not at att...this rug has pinks in it...not what I was looking for
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice and thick quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? not enough color description because there are pinks in it when I did not see that
I would rate the quality of this rug excellent if not for the colors. The color is not as depicted. The runner is very thick and sumptuous, however it just didn't have the oomph I was looking for in the colors. The "blue' is off as well. The entire background is a somewhat varigated green and the border a definite drab green. The live chat was very helpful and waiived the return fee due to color discrepancy.
This is a very long rug and just perfect for my entrance hallway. I love it, love it. The color background is a lite green just exactely what I wanted. Very little shedding and is very thick and rich looking. Just enough other colors to brighten any room. Enjoy!!
If you don't mind the constant shedding of wool fibers.......this is a fantastic buy! Beautiful rug, very well made. I bought these for my hardwood floor and I'm having to constantly sweep the floor because it sheds so much. If the shipping weren't so much, I'd return them and get a wool/silk blend instead.
I was very pleased with the density and cushiness of the runner. It worked wonderfully on my wood floors in my hallway. Unfortunately, my cat liked it also and clawed it all up the very first day while I was out. The cat has never clawed anything indoors before, but something attracted him to it. Oh, well, it WAS a nice rug.
Just put in hardwoods and overwhelmed by rug choices - the reviewers comments really helped, especially the ones that said this rug had more green in trim & background and muted. So plush, and goes perfectly in my home against mahogany colored floors. My neighbor loves this rug - I got two runners in different sizes and even made me take one to her house so she could see it over there! Fantastic price and very thick pile.... WONDERFUL!
